    Now we are talking!

    Just develop a chip to pick up the signals at the level of the spinal cord, which should be EASIER!

    I don't know when that was first broadcast, but braingate announced that they'd given someone mind control over a computer years ago. I want to say more than 5 at least and maybe closer to 10, although that's just from memory.

    I'm glad it's getting publicity but might have hoped for more progress.

    Signals cannot be picked up at the injury level (if that's what you mean cripply) because after they are severed neurons die back.

    Zaphod, years ago they used a monkey. The breakthrough published in Nature is doing in a human with the kind of precise control shown in the video.
